For the last Thursday’s Special in 2017 I am offering you a challenge that IS NOT, and yet it might be the most challenging one so far ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

I would like you to post again what you consider to be your best shot posted this year.

The end of this year has been a bit more stressful than usual for me, but I am hopeful that things will get better eventually. I would like to thank all my friends here for constant support and positive wishes.ย 

Love and best wishes for 2018!

P.S. See you again on 4th January with a new TS.


  1. I absolutely love the this shot, Paula. I was hoping for Traces of the Past but sometimes it’s easier to go with the flow. Thanks for the good wishes. Sending you a monster hug with hopes for better health next year xxx

  3. My best shot was the one that got away: late evening light on a row of houses reflected in the lake from my brotherโ€™s deck. I saw it, I loved it, I lost it. However, I can always enjoy the superior exquisiteness of your photo and feel nourished. Best of good wishes for you and your people in 2018 – good health, energy and peacefulness, and anything else you want to add. Say hello to Zagreb for me.

  4. This has been a dodgy year for many of us, so I am giving my whole-hearted support to a much better year coming up. Better health, better work, more money, and a lot more fun. May your life turn around in the best possible way!! Hugs from all of us!

  6. That was really a hard one, Paula. As I wrote in my post: my pick tonight might be different from my pick tomorrow. But I picked one. Your photo of Rovinj, that play of light, is quite stunning – if I didn’t say it then I am doing so now. I hope you have a great start for the new year.

  17. A lovely image Paula and I too wish you a less stressful year ahead. Hard for me to choose a favourite, so I have gone with an image which means such a lot to me emotionally. And one which reminds me that we should never, ever take life for granted. xx

  25. I can see why โ€“ everything works. The strong zig-zag directional composition, the arc of light, the soft lid of the sky and the gentle turn of the sea/coastline. Lovely!
